On a train through India (well, Amritsar!)

... city has its name as it is named after the pool. We could see some of the men bathing in the pool and some children with them who appeared to be shackled to the bottom (turns out it was safety as you could slip in the water) although they didn’t seem to happy about it! There was even a separate section for women to bathe but it was walled off so no one could see inside. The men entered the water with just their shorts on along with their turbans, some of the turbans had ...

Ahh he says, the 7.20am to Amritsar has been cancelled - there is another train at 7.45...he writes the time on the back of our ticket. The foreign tourist bureau is now closed he says, so you need to go to ...

Heat Sikhing

... other buildings and functions notably the Akal Takhat is the Sikh Parliament and the Guru-Ka-Langer a free community dinning room. It was from there an odd smell, not entirely unpleasant which I initially assumed was the smell of a couple of thousand exposed feet.
